Level 3 of my counselling studies, here I come! First day today of the next stage and I had a better sleep than I expected – something has shifted and the nerves and fear I’ve been so used to in the past have gone AWOL. This happens more and more and it catches me off guard a little. The last time was a work dinner with Hubby’s colleagues when I only realised afterwards that something was a little odd. The odd thing was that I had been so relaxed. A little victory I guess.
So. The next stage, a new tutor and a new group of people. Sure, I’m a little jittery but not in an oh-my-God-I’m-dreading-this kind of way. Sort of positive, really, and mostly looking forward to it. Once again I’m in a situation where I expected to feel like I always used to but instead feel overwhelmingly… …normal.
This seems more and more like a needless statement because it couldn’t be further from my mind, but it still makes me so happy:
Today I’m not going to drink.
